I stayed here for 2 nights with some friends to attend a wedding at nearby Caswell House. The rooms are lovely and Ray is a very kind and attentive host; when our cab to the wedding didn't show up, he went out of his way to drive us round to the venue, which we hugely appreciated. Excellent breakfast, too. This... More

A warm friendly greeting on arrival. Very comfortable room with good free wifi. A great tasty breakfast. I will definitely be going back. Ideally placed for all local amenities. There's a pub just up the road that does good food.

A great place to stay, warm welcome by Ray the owner, nothing was too much trouble, everything you need and very clean, a good choice for breakfast would recommend the Full English. We would definitely Italy stay again if in the area, highly recommended.
